globally. Creative learning derives its uniqueness from giving
students the potential to experience learning in a completely new way.
This presentation focuses on the how, what and why of creative
learning. It explores evidence-based research by teachers in the UK,
USA, Europe and Australia with children and young people in a variety
of settings, on themes arising from education programmes creatively
inclusive, culturally responsive and engaging for students from
diverse racial, ethnic, cultural and linguistic groups. Involving
students as stakeholders in their own education will be shown to have
significance to expanding the remit on what constitutes diverse,
inclusive and real world creativities which can empower teachers and
transform teaching in a range of different contexts including primary,
secondary and further education learning communities. Terrell @shellterrell, Ian Chia @ianchiaShelly Terrell @shellterrell, Ian Chia @ianchia

In this lively and interactive presentation Nielsen shatters the myths that have been used as excuses for administrators and policy makers to take the easy way out keeping 21st century students stuck in the past.
